The descriptions here are taken from Cory Doctorows podcast page. The list is chronological (that might not be the best way to do it, maybe it should be changed?)

Happy Xmas! (guest starring Poesy) 2015[edit | edit source]

It’s been a year since I sat down at the mic, but it’s Christmas and we have a tradition to uphold. Now we’re settling in here in Burbank and I’ve got a new computer, I’m hoping to get everything running again and get back to a regular schedule.

Happy Xmas! (guest starring Poesy) 2014[edit | edit source]

It’s that time again! School is out, but I’m still working, so the kid came to the office with me, just in time to record a new podcast. This year, Poesy performs a stirring rendition of Jingle Bells, with dirty words!

Flowers From Al 02[edit | edit source]

Here’s the second, concluding part of my reading of my 2003 short story “Flowers From Al,” written with Charlie Stross for New Voices in Science Fiction, a Mike Resnick anthology. It’s a pervy, weird story of transhuman romance.

[Note: This podcast episode starts with some very important thoughts on DRM in web browsers before Doctorow starts reading the story. That's what's transcribed.]

Flowers From Al 01[edit | edit source]

Here’s part one of my 2003 short story “Flowers From Al,” written with Charlie Stross for New Voices in Science Fiction, a Mike Resnick anthology. It’s a pervy, weird story of transhuman romance.

2013[edit | edit source]

Christmastime daddy-daughter podcast with Poesy[edit | edit source]

Every year, there’s a day or two between the date that my daughter’s school shuts and the day that my wife’s office shuts for Christmas holidays. Those are the official seasonal mid-week daddy-daughter days, and for the past two years, my daughter and I have gone to my office to record a podcast. Last year’s was great, but I think we hit a new high this year.

Lawful Interception 04[edit | edit source]

Here’s part four of a reading of my novella Lawful Interception, a sequel, of sorts, to Little Brother and Homeland. In addition to the free online read, you can buy this as an ebook single (DRM-free, of course!)

Here’s part three of a reading of my novella Lawful Interception, a sequel, of sorts, to Little Brother and Homeland. In addition to the free online read, you can buy this as an ebook single (DRM-free, of course!)

PRI’s Studio 360 on Disney parks[edit | edit source]

The PRI Show Studio 360 has released a great episode in its “American Icons” series, this one dealing with the Disney themeparks. I was delighted to be interviewed for it, and they’ve included our complete, unedited interview with the piece.

Talking Little Brother on KQED’s The Forum[edit | edit source]

I was privileged to appear on Michael Krasny’s Forum on KQED in San Francisco this morning as part of the San Francisco Public Library’s One City/One Book celebrations for my novel Little Brother. The KQED people already have the audio up on the Internet, which is pretty zippy production-mojo.

Sense About Science lecture[edit | edit source]

I gave the annual Sense About Science lecture last week in London, and The Guardian recorded and podcasted it. It’s based on the Waffle Iron Connected to a Fax Machine talk I gave at Re:publica in Berlin the week before.
